ordered mine as well, I'm not messing around with this order since the steelbooks of 'Logan' and 'Beauty and the Beast' were very limited.

Re: KONG:SKULL ISLAND - 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray

Will the Target exclusive content be disc-based or an online deal?

Re: KONG:SKULL ISLAND - 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray

So how does Best Buy do price matching before release? I can't believe this is going to be $39.99 (4K Steelbook) at release.

Do I understand correctly that the 4k/3D/Blu-ray/Digital is a BB exclusive, and there is a 3D/Blu-ray/Digital regular release too?

It's still weeks away. It's got to come down. I get refund on pick up.

Re: KONG:SKULL ISLAND - 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray

saw this on the plane last weekend. Not bad but not sure if it's something I want to own. I'll rent it first to see it on a bigger screen than the screen on the seatback of the plane.

Seems like this movie came out a year ago already. Loved it though so easy pick up once the price drops in a month or so.

Re: KONG:SKULL ISLAND - 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray

I wanted the 3D/4k set, so I went to Best Buy on my lunch break. I guess it's a good thing I did. After my purchase, there looked to be only one left. For those who can't find it, my store had a Kong display on the other side of the media section.

Re: KONG:SKULL ISLAND - 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray

I was at Target today and saw many copies of this on the shelf (regular BD, BD with the Target exclusive and the 4K UHD) $24.99 for the BD and $29.99 for the 4K UHD.

Thought long and hard, but decided to pass on it for now. I liked the movie a lot, but the BD is screaming to be $14.99 or less in about 1 month and even $9.99 or less by the Holidays.

I think I'm going to wait on this one. I know if I bought it now, I would regret it.

I saw it on the airplane and thought it was pretty cool but I want to see it on my big screen before I commit to owning it. That and I agree it'll be down to $20 for the 4K with a couple months so I'll get it then if the mood strikes me.

I had to jump on the 4K/3D steelbook from Best Buy in case it was limited. Picked it up over lunch.

Re: KONG:SKULL ISLAND - 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray

No store pickup for the Best Buy exclusive unless if you want to drive to Brentwood.

Is this a hot and scarce item and everybody wants it or Best Buy just wants you to visit the store?

The Ebay scumbags are selling it for $50-$60.

Re: KONG:SKULL ISLAND - 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray

still available at mine. i really really debated this. had it in my hands and opted out. i had the regular 3D version already ordered from Amazon and only $5 difference and maybe could have sold off 4K disc since i am not upgrading for awhile, but just didn't bite. (i did hide it behind some unobvious discs, but doubt i will go back for it...)

Re: KONG:SKULL ISLAND - 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray

only saw 5 copies of the steelbook this morning (one of which I took). This was when they opened.

The steel for this definitely seemed sparser than for something like Dr Strange. Given the price point and 4K, I can understand if they make this truly limited.

----- just checked online. Both the location I went to this morning and another big store in the area are both out of them. Only one of three stores here has any left in stock.

Re: KONG:SKULL ISLAND - 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray

I'm noticing that most of these 4K steelbooks are selling out quickly at the local stores, but pop up a week or two later on the site. I guess the physical stores get their stock first.

Re: KONG:SKULL ISLAND - 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray

I saw this was available to order and ordered one along with pre-order of GoTG 2.
I'm not into Steelbooks and don't have 4k yet, but for $5 more (than 3D) it was a no brainer.

Best of luck. As I mentioned in the Steelbook thread, here's how mine arrived last Saturday after being shipped between two pieces of cardboard:



Fortunately, they were able to send me a replacement . Even more fortunately, even though the second copy was also shipped that same way, it arrived unscathed and even cooler, the folks at Best Buy, knowing the situation and that I had already received a second copy for free, gave me a full refund for the first copy, so I got my undamaged one totally free. It's good to be a regular Steelbook collector at your local Best Buy, I guess.

Watched the 3D version today and it looked great. Easily reference quality.

Did it arrive in a mailer?
